The best you can: The preparation for knee surgery will vary depending on the surgery. However in general, the stronger the leg the better the recovery. Therefore, a strengthening program from the core to the ankles would be helpful. In addition, flexibility or motion of the knee and hip is important. I also recommend having ice packs ready as they will help with pain management and swelling after surgery..
